  • After Nokia's Q2 Earnings, Improving Revenue And A Flat Share Price Are Possible [View article]
    What return would that be, Aq? When the shares are retired, they become valueless, and whatever subsequently happens to the share price doesn't directly affect the company's operations. As for everything being what-ifs, well yes, at the time the decision is made, but from there it can prove to be right or wrong, and nothing can be done about it.

  • Bank Of America Turning The Corner With Pulling Guards [View article]
    Ray, given that most of those voting shares are owned by other members of the executive cliques, what motivation is there for them to do anything other than continue to prosper from ever higher executive salaries? The system is rigged, and has been an open invitation for abuse since its inception. It used to be moderated somewhat by public perception, but now it appears to be out of control, and those who could stop it (governments) don't seem at all inclined to do so...

    One expense that needs to be reduced is "cost of managing"; a company with such lagging SP should not be paying its executives higher than industry average salaries, especially when that "average" is already ridiculously elevated. Basically, they are paying themselves as if they owned the company!

  • BlackBerry: More Fat Trimming Is Needed [View article]
    "...to commit suicide." Really? So it's not just a sneaky way of getting to the head of the bus queue?

    GB, conferencing while driving isn't a great idea, either; it's what you are thinking about that matters, not what you are doing with your hands!

    "how do you expect me to steer my vehicle properly?"
    I don't; this is why using a phone while driving is generally (and rightly) frowned upon! Those who do, seem to be blissfully unaware of how they do the stupidest things...

  • Facebook: Great Company But A Tricky Valuation [View article]
    I like a "feel good gimmick"! Buy backs are otherwise very dubious, and if dilution is a problem, then why issue so many shares in the first place?

    Nope; CO is unstable and soon oxidizes to CO2! Nice try, but hopeless, as usual...

  • BlackBerry's Partnership With PayPal Makes BBM The Best Digital Wallet [View article]
    Good point, SH! I personally would be more comfortable transferring money via BBRY phone, than any other, but if they repeat their pathetic marketing attempts, who's going to know? Pay pal is obviously huge, and will hopefully be better at getting the message out, but isn't PP losing popularity? This could go either way, and it's all about marketing, at which BBRY have, so far, been a dismal failure...

  • Foxconn Might Build And Sell Nokia Android Phones [View article]
    Perhaps, but who else but Foxonn has the firepower to take on the likes of Xiaomi and Huwaei? I know of no one on that scale in India, besides the old Nokia, then MS factories, and I can't see Nokia wanting to put themselves in the power of the indian government again, after the tax fiasco!

  • Declining Return On Equity Can't Keep Facebook's Stock From Rising [View article]
    If so, there'll be even more people crashing in to us! How long before we have wireless versions?

    The device does seem to be based around a phone, or at least the prototype was. Some of the proposed rivals are also bit of kit into which one places one's mobile phone.

  • (Update) Sandstorm Gold Acquires Another 2% Of Aurico Metals [View article]
    Yes, Sand needs to decide which business it is in. That said, this does look to be a particularly good deal, so hard to pass up on!
